TBH Bro, War Gaming has absolutely NO desire to support content contributors anymore.  It was always a fight to get anything helpful at all and I'm done fighting for things.

The rest of the content contributors can continue to enjoy being free labour for War Gaming at their own discretion.

 

This is sad.

Well then...

Your podcasts were a pleasure to listen to. I enjoyed the banter between you and Lephturn. And the podcast really helped me improve. 

 

So thank you. I appreciate what you both did for us.

I dug myself out of the retirement grave to say I'm really, really sad that WG let something this awesome for their product go down the tubes.  Don't know what the hell you guys (WG) are doing but it looks as though you're doing your best to jump the shark.

 

LOVED this podcast and even had the honor of appearing on it once which was a highlight in my time with this game.  Hope you guys reconsider down the line, we were all better for your efforts.  Thanks lads.

Lephturn and I still have to talk about it.  It's just hard to say what we'll decide at this point but it is a fact that War Gaming couldn't possibly care less about it's contributors.  NO ONE in this community has any idea how much CC_Sly did for us and fought for us in the past.


 

o7 CC_Sly and stay classy!


 

Rest assured that if we do permanently "hang up the mic's" we'll do a grand finale episode!

Couldn't blame you guys if you hang it up given WG's current stances. 

 

If, however, you do happen to continue....please don't bring back Pitt to the show.  He brings zero to the show other than irritation.  Sorry, but the last two episodes you guys did with him were train wrecks with him constantly trying to talk over you both and referring to himself in the 3rd person (who the F does that?).  His analysis isn't good...as you pointed out Lokeen on a few occasions during the last show (not to mention his stats) and it upsets the good dynamic that you and Leph have.  If WG didn't kill this podcast, I'm afraid that guy eventually would.  Apologies for being harsh...but after listening to the last two casts...it really seemed that bad.

Comrade, i agree with you, the next podcast or last podcast of the Boom should be Lokeen and Lephturn. I was lucky to talk tanks with them. 

 

The last two episodes were recorded back to back and released apart. It was a two part with out a two part name. It wasnt my best work, i didnt pre-plan, and i was over excited in my discussion. Sorry for the poor work. 

 

So i dont want to kill the boom. Other than financial benefit, how can we tell Lephturn to make more?  

 

Do we PM Lephturn to tell him how we miss the podcast?

 

Do we PM him here?

 

Let's try to keep the podcast alive.

There is only one TD and 183 is her name. 

I drive Joseph Stallon (IS) tanks for the win.

Pitt...in hindsight, I was harsh.  Apologies...wrote it just after listening.  I'm prone to being a little too forward and not very diplomatic.  No doubt you do your best and the guys must think highly of you considering you've been on the cast many times.

 

To answer Pitt's question...Lephturn...start up a Patreon account.  I am a Patron of Bushka's and certainly would be willing to pay for some podcast entertainment as well.  Give it a shot.

Even hundreds of miles and weeks removed, it was somewhat clear: Pitt was lit ;)

Hey man... All the work that ALL of you put into TankBoom. Lephturn, Lokeen, and every guest who was willing to participate... You turned the game.. into a social experience. 

Improving the game tenfold. I'm sorry about the companies refusal to help contributors.

 

Thanks.

I never listened to the podcasts, but i think imma start now--it seems that they were great
Some people say the Type 62 is overpowered. Having >500 battles and a 67% winrate, I may agree. However, none of y'all realize just how uncomfortable it is to sit down on these flimsy plastic seats with "Made in China" emblazoned on them. I mean, my cupholder just broke in half. How the f#%$ am I supposed to fire 250mm pen HEAT shells at the fronts of Tier 8 heavies if I have to be holding my Red Bull in one hand at the same time? It's ridiculous.

I heard a funny quote about Ozzy.  He never did podcasts not knowing they had 500,000+ downloads but he would do radio for 50 people in the mid west.

 

Some people adapt, some die.

Sad to see the boom go silent but I understand.  As a former player now my self what has happened to the game and it’s treatment of players and contributors is shameful.  Lots of us out here appreciated the effort that went into

the podcast and thank you for it.

Sad to hear this, Leph and Lokeen and all the guests and anyone who helped research.......thank you. Sincerely, thank you for all the hard work. Tank Boom was the other half of the game to me. Hand in hand it was what I looked forward to. I'm sorry for all the problems that you guys have had to go through in trying to produce a MUCH needed broadcast. These kids out there now.....dear lord. I steer anyone I come in contact with that will listen, please, please, please go back and check out the past episodes. Salut! :honoring:

And now Lokeen has just announced that he's leaving Blitz permanently.

 

Really sad :(

It looks like the boom has already aired its last episode. With Lokeen leaving and leph all but silent the end has come.  God job wargaming, yet again your stupidity shows no bounds.

Really wanted to see a new Tank Boom pop up in the podcasts during the holiday, but completely understand what is going on.

Still enjoy listening to the older podcasts. There's plenty of wisdom there which still applies even with all of the map changes, nerfs, buffs, etc. Thank you Leph, Lokeen and guests for everything you've done. Hopefully, at some point, Tank Boom will return.
